If you think the small jobs aren't important, then try making a tomato rose with dull kitchen knife and you'll immediately begin to appreciate the Wusthof Ikon Blackwood 3.5 in. Paring Knife. Even for it's size you'll recognize the balance of the high-carbon steel blade and ergonomic handle crafted from Grenadill wood. Sustainably farmed and featuring a rich, tight grain, this African hardwood is the perfect counterpart to the sleek, sharp blade. A triple-rivet design holds both parts firmly together for years of fine knife-work. This elegant kitchen essential should be hand-washed for best performance.
